There is a hint of coffee in the aroma which is not very strong. The head is think, but not abundant. It has a dark brown color with a tinge of red through the light. Fairly favorable. A decent porter.

Late night bottle at home. Pours deep brown with no head to speak of. Nose is chocolate and cola. Tastes of flat cola, molasses, chocolate, some smoke, and soy sauce. Thin palate very little carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with no head to speak of. Aroma of sweet malts, some coffee / chocolate. Taste is lighter than expected - sweetish with smokey aroma finishing through.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brun avec un anneau de mousse. Malts rôtis, torréfaction, fumée et chocolat sec sont les pafums qui me viennent à l’esprit. Céréales noires diluées ou imprécises en ce qui touchent les saveurs. Corps plutôt léger et texture mince sans être aqueuse. Bulles endormies. Finale sèche sur des notes de grains brûlés. Simple mais pas simplet.

33cl bottle from a colleague. 5.0%. Dark dark brown colour lasting beige head. Malty fruity aroma. It’s kinda ok, some chocolate but mostly malty. Some fried butter. It’s not great, but not terrible. Starts ok but not sure about this melted buttery finish. odd.

Poured from 12oz bottle at Logan hardware arcade. Black with almost no head. Smell is plum and oily. Not pleasant. Taste is better - has the English style porter twang to it. Malts, fruits, musty, prune and somewhat light. Not bad

12 oz bottle pour. Pours a dark brown color with no head really. Kind of a sweet chocolate aroma. A watery milk chocolate flavor with a nice, bolder finish. Lighter body than other porters. Definitely a unique porter in my opinion. Decent flavors all throughout with a touch of smoke. I’d drink this again for sure.
